There is a new Sheriff in town and his name is POTUS. This one is much different than the last one who bowed to Putin. President Joe Biden has announced from The Whitehouse that he has leveled an array of sanctions against the Russian government for placing bounties on USA troops, its attempted interference in the 2020 American presidential election, occupation of the Crimea, and other malign activities by the Communists.
Washington has announced new sanctions as well as other measures against Moscow for bounties on USA troops for election meddling and for cybercrimes. Finally, truth and consequences for a killer liar who will learn that payback is Cyka.
The White House started with the expulsion of 10 Russian diplomats and announced a new round of sanctions against Russia. These moves are in response to interference in last year’s presidential election as well as the hacking last year of federal government agencies. The U.S. for the first time explicitly linked that intrusion to a Russian intelligence service.
President Biden wrote in a letter Congress "I have determined that specified harmful foreign activities of the Government of the Russian Federation — in particular, efforts to undermine the conduct of free and fair democratic elections and democratic institutions in the United States and its allies and partners; to engage in and facilitate malicious cyber-enabled activities against the United States and its allies and partners; to foster and use transnational corruption to influence foreign governments; to pursue extraterritorial activities targeting dissidents or journalists; to undermine security in countries and regions important to United States national security; and to violate well-established principles of international law, including respect for the territorial integrity of states — constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States."
The Democrats have apparently decided to tell this Kremlin Communist that it is no longer business as usual because Joe Biden owes nothing to Vladimir Putin. The Russian lies have to stop after Dictator Putin said Democratically elected USA President Joe Biden told Him that he wanted to normalize bilateral ties to cooperate on arms control, Iran’s nuclear program, Afghanistan, and climate change.
